Is there a reason that you need ruby-on-rails, ruby-on-rails-3, and ruby-on-rails-3.1? 144 questions are tagged with all three. –  Kevin Vermeer Oct 5 '11 at 20:11
There are questions that are specific to specific versions, which is why all three tags are useful. There are people who can answer a ruby-on-rails-3.1 question but who are only subscribed to the ruby-on-rails tag, which is why it is advantageous to tag a question with both. I agree that it's messy, but this is what creates that behavior. –  John Bachir Oct 5 '11 at 20:22
